The senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, on Sunday, said that he would contest the forthcoming election despite resigning from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Sani stated this in a statement he posted on his official Facebook page on Sunday morning.
The Senator, however, did not disclose his next choice of party, promising to reveal that in the next two days.
Sani said: “This is to thank all my supporters and friends for the show of solidarity and assurances of support over my decision to exit the APC.
“I assure you that in the next two days, you will be informed of my new party. And be rest assured I will contest in the upcoming elections Insha Allah.”
According to INEC 2019 timetable, all political parties, however, have up till November 2 to submit lists of their candidates for governorship and state houses of assembly positions.
The parties also have till November 17 to withdraw or replace candidates for president and National Assembly elections, and up till December 1 for governorship and state Houses of Assembly candidates.
